Shellac was formed when Bob Weston moved to Chicago and joined drummer Todd Trainer and guitarist Steve Albini in 1992

They played their first shows in Chicago in 1993, and their first out of town shows later that year in Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.

Since then, the band has released 4 LPs and a few 7-inch singles. The most recent LP, Excellent Italian Greyhound, was released in June of 2007. A new LP is expected to be released in the next year or two. All of Shellac's records are, and will be available on Touch and Go Records.

The band members all work for a living and the band is their pastime, so they don't tour often or for very long. Concerts and touring have no correlation with album releases, but they tour when they have the time and inclination. They love playing music together.

The band will continue to release albums and play concerts at the same sporadic pace indefinitely.
